Find Otoplasty abroad with Mozocare

Otoplasty is plastic surgery of the ears, and usually involves making the shape and position of the ear appear more healthy, natural, or shapely. This can involve patients with ears that protrude very far from the side of the head, with genetic conditions that cause deformities of the ear, or with ears damaged by traumatic injury. Ear surgery is usually done under anesthetic, and bandages must remain in place for several days following surgery. Surgical scarring is usually minimal, and easily hidden in the natural crease of the ear.

\Restoring a more natural appearance to the ears, or to any part of the face, can help increase patient's confidence and reduce dissatisfaction with their appearance. Abnormal shape and size of the ear can cause emotional distress for many patients, and otoplasty can help alleviate that distress and give the ear a much more satisfying appearance for the patient. Surgical results are visible almost immediately once bandagese removed and ears will be permanently reshaped and positioned. There are many sub-procedures within otoplasty, focusing on different areas of the ear.

Earlobe hole correction addresses issues involving the earlobes, whilst prominent ear correction repositions the ear to be less protruding. Bat ear correction is similar, pinning back ears which stick out or protrude.

About Otoplasty

Otoplasty is the surgical correction of the outer ear (pinna).

The surgery can be performed on patients whose ears have fully developed, which is usually from the age of 5 upwards. The surgery is usually performed on both ear, in order to ensure they are proportional to the face and symmetrical. Depending on the complexity, ear procedures can be performed with either sedation and a local anesthetic or a general anesthetic.

Most commonly, the incision is made behind the ear, however the incision may alternatively be made in the inner creases of ear. Once the incision has been made, the excess cartilage and skin are removed, allowing the surgeon to reshape the ear or reduce the size.
